From the Gallo-Roman times to the Middle Ages, until today, Ripaille has always been a place where residents and visitors come to recharge their batteries. The Domaine now belongs to the Necker-Engel family, descendants of Louis XVI's Minister of Finance. Visits of 1h30 are proposed for the price of 10€.

You will then walk along the lake to reach the center of Thonon-les-Bains. Thermal city par excellence, take advantage of it to relax and recharge your batteries after your 4th step.
